agreed. for the how-to and theory of reloading, few do it better than Richard Lee, if any. Love my 2nd edition of modern reloading. I was horribly disappointed in the amount of load data in Lymans 49th, yet, considering that it is a standard, I am happy to own it. I read the ABCs cover to cover twice for free, via Amazons lending library. Also a must read in my book.
